Textron Marine and Logistics (TMLS) was consumed with paper. To be better prepared against the forces of nature such as Hurricanes and potential data loss, TMLS turned to IDT for its subject matter expertise and its Cloud-based Content Services solution to manage TMLS’ vital content. TMLS is winning the battle with smart technology choices that are creating new efficiencies in its internal operations, saving money and time, and fostering continued growth. The company’s storied history, starting back in 1935 as Bell Aircraft Corp., continues today with the production of advanced combat vehicles and cutting-edge maritime craft used by U.S.
Today, TMLS is using a progressive combination of technologies: Content Services, together with distributed, web-based capture for processing its accounts payable, expense reporting, journal vouchers, and certain HR records and more.

Security in the Cloud was certainly a concern given TMLS handles confidential information. TMLS looked to IDT to provide a complete Content Services solution from Hyland Software and CAPSYS Technologies inclusive with the necessary controls in place to ensure accuracy while receiving customer certification from Defense Contract Authorization Agency (DCAA). “When DCAA saw our process, they understood that we are validating as we go along, which reduces risk,” said Sean Hansen, Director, Financial Planning & Analysis. “This kind of accuracy and consistency in our processes is valuable to our customers.”
